Double beta decay: phenomenology and experiments


Double beta decay (DBD) is the rarest known type of radioactive decay, with the observed half-life of 10^18--10^25 years. Two kinds of double beta processes are predicted: one of them (observed) is the two-neutrino DBD. The second one -- the neutrinoless DBD -- is forbidden by the Standard Model, and has never been observed. I will discuss the reasons why this process is so important in the search for the New Physics beyond the Standard Model. The current status of  experiments will be reviewed.


Dr. Vladislav V. Kobychev is the head of the Lepton Physics Department ( ), Institute for Nuclear Research, Kyiv, Ukraine. The fields of expertise: experimental study of rare and forbidden nuclear processes (double beta, beta and alpha decays); search for hypothetical particles (axions and axion-like particles) and for hypothetical properties of known particles; experimental neutrino physics. Graduated from Kyiv National Univ. (astrophysics), PhD degree from the Institute for Nuclear Research (experimental nuclear and particle physics), post-doc fellow in the National Laboratory of Gran Sasso (Italy), visiting researcher in Seoul National Univ. (Korea), visiting professor in Kyongpook National Univ. (Korea) and in Rome II «Tor Vergata» University (Italy). A member of experimental collaborations Borexino, AMoRE, CUPID-Mo etc. A laureate of the State Prize of Ukraine in Science and Technology.
Universities for Ukraine Non-Residential Fellow, sponsored by the Georgia Institute of Technology.
